For hair removal: to wax or not to wax?

SPONSORED

While there are various methods of hair removal available, waxing is a very popular choice. Waxing is a type of semi-permanent hair removal that removes the hair from the root, keeping hair from growing back for three to six weeks, on average. This is in contrast to creams and shaving, which remove hair at the surface of the skin. The most popular areas that clients have waxed include eyebrows, the bikini area, legs, arms and armpits, and the back. Ear and nose hair, knuckles, and feet can also be waxed for hair removal.

A soft wax, or strip waxing, involves spreading a wax over the skin in a thin layer. A paper or cloth strip is applied and pressed firmly, which makes the strip adhere to the wax, and in turn the wax adheres to the skin. The strip is then ripped against the direction of hair growth, removing the wax along with the hair.

Hard wax, or stripless wax, is applied in a thicker layer and is allowed to cool and harden. Removal is a bit easier and doesn’t require cloth or paper strips. If you have sensitive skin, this may be a better choice for you.

Although there are kits available for at-home hair removal, it’s best to have waxing performed by a licensed esthetician. He or she can remove large amounts of hair at once, and the results last for a long time. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over time usually show a much softer regrowth of hair.

Compared with tweezing and shaving, waxing leaves a much smoother surface on the skin, for a longer period of time. Waxing may leave redness for a short while, but won’t give you rough stubble like shaving can, and you can avoid ingrown hairs that may occur after tweezing. For more information, please contact:
